Paquete múltiple de tres vagones, NER 4T Chaldron

Paquete K: Ex-S.C.C National Coal Board - Tres Chaldrons construidos en Darlington del período temprano, como presentes en Stargate Colliery en febrero de 1950.

Contiene tres vagones, numerados:

  • 16
  • 22
  • 28

En Stargate Colliery, las líneas de Emma y Greenside Collieries convergieron, con la rama de Emma operada por una locomotora estacionaria con base en Stargate, que a su vez se unió a las líneas ex-NER cerca de Heathfield, a medio camino entre Stella y Addidson, por una inclinación automática. El motor estacionario en Stargate fue reemplazado en 1948 por una locomotora en funcionamiento y esta práctica continuó hasta 1961, cuando se cerró todo el sistema, ya que los Chaldrons habían estado en uso continuo desde mediados del siglo XIX.
Usados para suministrar carbón a las calderas de Stargate y Emma, ​​​​los Chaldron también se usaron como vehículos de servicio, transportando desechos y materiales de construcción hacia y desde las minas de carbón, mientras que otros se usaron como vehículos corredores en la pendiente entre las dos minas de carbón. Esto permitió mover los vagones a la caza de cabezas en Emma por encima de las pantallas, así como traer vagones vacíos desde la parte inferior de la pendiente. Como resultado de su longevidad en el servicio, no era raro ver tanto a NCB como a S.C.Co. leyendas mezcladas en rastrillos de Chaldrons, una vista incongruente entre los vagones más modernos que se utilizan.

Lista de especificaciones:

  • Chasis de metal fundido a presión con cuerpo de plástico. Peso de 9g descargado.
  • Opera sobre curvas de radio mínimo (371 mm, 1.er radio establecido)
  • Cinco diseños de carrocería diferentes, que cubren un período de tiempo de 1840 a 1978.
  • Tres estilos de diseño de ruedas; radios divididos, radios en estrella y radios ondulados, hasta un perfil RP25-88 de calibre 00 ennegrecido.
  • Tres estilos de disposición de frenos y mangos de freno, con diferentes tipos de bloques y el freno de tipo cierre Londonderry más complicado.
  • Tres arreglos de 'tableros explosivos'.
  • 'Tableros codiciosos' adicionales y removibles (extensiones de tableros horizontales al cuerpo) al Chaldron construido por Shildon Works, lo que brinda una mayor carga de carbón.
  • Pasamanos de alambre de ancho de escala, acoplamiento de mordaza de pasador de metal y palancas de freno de mano de alambre/grabado.
  • Piezas de detalle de metal/plástico erosionadas, incluidas agarraderas, pasadores de seguridad de puertas, puntos de cadena del chasis y cadenas de seguridad en metal.
  • Vagones conectados a través de una cadena fina de eslabones completamente nueva con cabezales magnéticos de neodimio, conectados al vagón a través de un acoplamiento de pasador de chaveta prototípico.
  • Dos acoplamientos magnéticos NEM adicionales provistos con paquetes de vagones para permitir la instalación en locomotoras y/o material rodante adicional.
  • La obra de arte presenta marcas y números auténticos de la mina de carbón, precisos para el período de tiempo modelado y basado en evidencia fotográfica real cuando es posible.
  • Ayuda de investigación adicional proporcionada por Beamish Living Museum, Bowes Railway y North Eastern Railway Association.

Three wagon multi-pack, NER 4T Chaldron Ex-S.C.C National Coal Board

I first saw these waggons on a school tip to Beamish Museum many, many years ago and wished that there was a model I could buy. Then suddenly there was! Its difficult to say how accurate these are. All the real life examples I have seen have either been very decrepid or a showpiece restoration, but these models do look fantastic. Fore something so small; they run very well and the coupling system is excellent as well.

Perfection

I love them, They are going down the mine, to see the light of day once in a while.

Great Chaldrons!

These are beautifully detailed and they look great and roll great. The magnetic couplers are genius, they look and work great - NO PROBLEMS. I bought six to haul behind an era 1 locomotive. They do dwarf the HO engines and cars but are a match for OO engines and cars from Hornby and they match the size of caldrons coupled with the open passenger and closed coaches in photographs of the replica engines and trains. It is obvious that you take pride in your work.

I hope you can make some era 1 locomotives, coaches and rolling stock.

You should market your couplers because they are the best for era 1.
I will buy two more packs of chaldrons.

Great little wagons.

These wagons (waggons given their age) are perfect for people modelling early railways right up to the late 70s and are a perfect match for some of the smaller steam shunting locomotives available from other manufacturers (like Hornby’s Pecketts) They are highly detailed for such small waggons, with the wooden planks having the relief detail you’d expect to see on much more expensive (and larger) wagons. The wheels have extremely fine flanges and are a perfect model of split spoke examples, being fully visible when the wagons are on the track.
The use of chain couplings, with magnets to make sure the wagons couple together is an inspired choice as the standard tension lock coupling would be almost the same length as the wagons and would spoil the look of these perfect wagons, with two spare chain couplings for use in a locomotive this gives the chance to have one locomotive ready to trundle around with the wagons with very little effort.
The livery application is spot on, each having subtle differences from the colour of the top greedy board (2 being a grey colour and one being black) to the individual painted markings on the wagons.
These are very light in comparison to larger wagons and would not pose a problem for small locomotives to haul a respectable length train even with either a real coal load or some of the resin loads available from Accurascale.
I would definitely buy more of these in other liveries when I was able to afford them

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC, but….

For accuracy, fidelity and historical importance and a leap of faith into the all-important railway development in the era “Before Thomas” these tiny trucks can best be described as magical. The magic extends to the magnetic chain couplings which, at a stroke, remove the mechanical challenges of uncoupling rakes of any other model coupling on cares to name. One as yet unadvertised benefit of these trucks is that they successfully run on curves of OO gauge track radius down to an unbelievable FOUR INCHES. Just one criticism: selling coal for a coal wagon smacks of an unnecessary money-grub, plus the observation that there is no period appropriate locomotive to haul even a short rake of these famous trucks which lasted to the very end of the steam age in the 1960s, seen below being hauled by Britain’s mightiest ever steam locomotive, the Beyer Peacock Garratt 4-8-4-4-8-4 double articulated, double locomotive in New South Wales in the 1960s….

fantastic!

i've bought several asccurascale products and every time i am blown away by the level of detail and accuracy of each model with these being no exception

Excellent models

Very pleased with the quality and detail

Stunning little set of rolling stock.

This is the second set that I have added to my collection. They are perfect for my up and coming local mining layout. The addition on the new coal loads just finishes them off beautifully. First class job.

Brilliant Wagons

Absolutely delighted with these tiny beasties, currently running behind my Peckett
(un-prototypical but hey! who cares), great job A/S
